Apple’s App Store Review Team Rejects Steve Jobs Tribute Calendar
Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs passed away last year in October. People around the world mourned his demise and the Apple gadgets they owned made them reminded of Steve Jobs. Many admirers of Steve Jobs came up with unique ways to pay tribute to him. Many went to Apple Stores as a way of paying their respects, leaving messages and Apple products when they left.
One iOS app developer decided another unique way to honor Jobs. He decided to release a free calendar app on Apple’s App Store honoring Jobs. However, according reports in to MacNN, Apple was not so keen about this idea. Apple’s App Store review team decided to reject the app.
The app’s developer, Nushka Labs, develop and sell calendar apps that allow users to import their own images and then email them to friends. Facebook sharing is also included for those that choose to use it, and the apps retail for $0.99.
This Steve Jobs tribute app had been worked along the same lines. However, the images were already there along with attribution where necessary. The App Store team sent a response to the developer, citing reasons for rejection.
What is your opinion on this issue? Do you see this proposed app as a tribute to Steve Jobs? Or as an attempt to capitalize on his demise. Post your comments below.
